My contact with Michael Drayton Junior School (MDJS) started when I was asked to come and help them with the development of an area of the school grounds for wildlife. After coming up with a design and looking at the rest of the school grounds, we realised the huge potential for learning that is here on the school site. I was delighted to join the school as a member of staff in 2013 and will now be working 2 days a week at school, not only to develop the 'WildlifeLearning' area but also to work alongside the school and its staff to maximise all the outdoor learning opportunities & raise the profile of natural history throughout school.
Welcome to the Michael Drayton Junior School website, where we aim to document our journey to transform an area of
our school grounds into a wildlife haven & to instill an interest and love of the natural world.
"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."

"Learning outside the classroom should not be an optional extra, but rather an entitlement to all; stimulating the senses and developing an early interest in the natural world."
